It is now confirmed that Logicenters will develop a terminal for the logistics company Dachser Finland. The new property will be built near Tampere-Pirkkala Airport – enabling a more efficient logistics flow for the company.
Logistics property developer Logicenters is expanding further in Finland by developing 21,800 m2 next to Tampere–Pirkkala Airport. Logicenters will establish a logistics terminal of 5,100 m2 for Dachser Finland on the site. The property will function as Dachser’s second logistics center in Finland and as international traffic hub while providing the capability for the company to offer an even more comprehensive service model to a wider customer base in the Pirkanmaa region and rest of Finland.
”It’s with great pleasure that we follow Dachser Finland’s growth. We have been working together for several years, and enabling another property for the company is exactly how we wish to operate. It is a perfect area to operate from as a logistics company, and the terminal will be built to create an efficient logistics flow”, says Jarkko Äikää, Commercial Director at Logicenters.
Dachser Finland provides modern, efficient, and IT-driven logistics services. Already in 2019, Dachser and Logicenters signed their first agreement regarding a property in Kerava, and the new agreement is part of Logicenters strategy to follow customers on their journey. The location near Tampere-Pirkkala Airport is optimal for Dachser’s logistics flow and will be a crucial part of making their operations more effective.
“We are grateful that Logicenters wants to continue supporting us to create opportunities for efficient and modern international logistics. It is a partner we have great confidence in. For us as a family-owned company, this is an investment in the future. Not only does the new logistics center offer services and create job opportunities locally, but it also plays a great role in our long-term investment plan in Finland”, says Tuomas Leimio, Managing Director, Dachser Finland European Logistics.
The property will be developed with Breeam certificate, geothermal heat, and solar panels, all in line with Logicenters sustainability profile. The terminal is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2025. Going forward there will also be optional to expand the logistics area with another warehouse up to 20,000 m2.
Logicenters has acquired a new site of 58 000 m2 in Tampere, Finland. A state-of-the-art vacant property of 29 000 m2 is expected to be ready in the fourth quarter of 2024.
The logistics real estate operator Logicenters is expanding its presence in Finland by acquiring a brownfield site of 58 000 m2 in Hervanta, close to Tampere. It is now clear that the old property will be demolished, and in its place Logicenters will build a vacant sustainable warehouse with the possibility for several tenants to rent at the same time.
“This will be Logicenters first bigger brownfield-project in the Nordics. As the availability of greenfield sites in good logistics locations becomes increasingly limited, even in the Nordic region, I am convinced that we will make more acquisitions like this in the metropolitan areas in the future”, says Matthias Kettelhoit, CEO at Logicenters.
The facility in Hervanta will be located close to E12 and E63 with direct connection to Northern Finland. From the warehouse in Kytömaankatu to the city center of Tampere takes only 17 minutes by car.
“We are excited about the development of the new property in Hervanta. This strategic acquisition is significant to serve the southern logistics hub of Finland and demonstrates our dedication to offer top-class logistics solutions”, says Jarkko Äikää, Commerical Director at Logicenters in Finland.
The new property of 29 000 m2 is developed in line with Logicenters sustainable profile and will have solar panels on the roof as well as geothermal heat. The ambition is to acquire the environmental certification BREEAM excellent.
